The "condensed" practice, for daily recitation, revolves around the Peaceful guru, as yidam. However, there is a complete ngondro, as well as the various levels of practice involved with the three roots--though mainly one takes the Guru as Yidam, and progresses from outer practice, Guru Mebar (Peaceful Guru), through Inner practice, secret practice Sengdongma (Lion-Headed Dakini) and extremely secret practice Guru Drakpo (Wrathful Guru).Also in the sadhana that was written by Jamgon Kongtrul, vol. 12 Rinchen Terdzö, he added the Tsedrub (Long-life preactice) of Guru Pema Obar, which is a form of Guru Rinpoche manifesting as Amitayus (tshe dpag med).
